  • Welcome back from the weekend.

  • We`re happy you`re taking 10 minutes for CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • I`m Carl Azuz at the CNN Center.

  • Our first story takes us to a nation of 26 million people

  • between Saudi Arabia and the Gulf of Aden.

  • It`s Yemen.

  • Its government was overthrown in January by Houthi rebels

  • who had been at odds with the Yemeni government for years.

  • The country is very unstable.

  • A terrorist attack on two mosques last Friday

  • killed more than 130 people and wounded hundreds more.

  • The ISIS militant group said it was responsible.

  • But al Qaeda also operates in Yemen and the U.S.

  • says security there continues to get worse.

  • That`s why the American military

  • pulled all of its remaining personnel out of the country this weekend.

  • In Yemen`s capital, the American Embassy was closed last month.

  • In our coverage of the conflict in Ukraine,

  • we`ve talked about how relations between the U.S.

  • and Russia have declined.

  • According to Gallup surveys,

  • about half of the American population

  • had a positive view of Russia three years ago.

  • Today, 70 percent of Americans have an unfavorable view

  • and 82 percent of Russians disapprove of U.S. leadership.

  • When Gallup asked Americans earlier this year

  • what country they`d consider to be America`s greatest enemy,

  • 18 percent answered Russia, the most of any nation worldwide.

  • North Korea was right behind that.

  • So it`s significant that with relations between the U.S.

  • and Russia being at their lowest point since the end of the cold war,

  • Russia would invite North Korea`s leader to an event in Moscow.

  • Facing a backlash from the West, Russia is looking East.

  • President Vladimir Putin inviting North Korean leader

  • Kim Jong-un to Moscow to attend upcoming

  • World War II anniversary celebrations.

  • A Russian officials says North Korea`s supreme leader is expected to attend,

  • but so far no formal confirmation from Pyongyang.

  • You`ve seen the number of meetings

  • that he`s had with Western leaders in Europe decline.

  • And so the Russians have talked about this Asian alternative.

  • And this is including some outreach to China,

  • but other countries in Asia,

  • to try to portray Mr. Putin as not isolated, which in fact is the case.

  • The Kremlin says 68 world leaders

  • were invited to the Victory Day celebrations on May the 9th,

  • but some leaders, including President Obama, have declined.

  • Relations with the West are strained following

  • Russia`s annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

  • But recently, Moscow and Pyongyang have been fostering warmer relations.

  • The two countries even declared 2015 their year of friendship.

  • If Kim attends, it would be his first official trip

  • outside North Korea since inheriting the leadership in late 2011.

  • If he`s able to go to meet Putin in Moscow or elsewhere in Russia,

  • this would appear to be a sign

  • that he has completely consolidated control

  • and he`s confident enough to leave the nest

  • and go do statesmanlike things around the world.

  • And Putin continues to flex Russia`s military muscles.

  • Defense officials saying nearly 80,000 troops

  • have been placed on full combat alert.

  • On Wednesday,

  • NATO jets intercepted a number of Russian military aircraft

  • as they neared Latvian airspace,

  • further rattling nerves among Russia`s neighbors.

  • India has the second highest human population in the world.

  • But it`s number one when it comes to tigers.

  • It`s home to about half the world`s tigers.

  • They typically live about eight to 10 years in the wild,

  • though all tiger subspecies are endangered.

  • India doesn`t have nearly as many as it used to,

  • but their numbers are growing again, thanks,

  • in large part, to conservation efforts.

  • Here`s what one of those efforts looks like.

  • When people report tiger attacks, they say it came out of nowhere.

  • It is staggering to think that

  • there were tens of thousands of tigers in the forests of India.

  • Now, there`s just over 2,200, something like that.

  • Oh, that`s very good. Oh, you`re good.

  • How are things going? How goes the fight?

  • It`s been good. The numbers say there are 2226 tigers in India in the wild.

  • Who else has seen a tiger? Lots of you.

  • Conflict has not really gone higher than the last few months.

  • Your real passion is saving tigers, through conflict resolution,

  • there`s a very visceral fear of the tiger throughout much of India.

  • So if one comes into a village, they`re often killed.

  • And you go into these places and try to talk people down,

  • try to make them appreciate the value of a forest with wild tigers.

  • It`s all about people and their code of conduct,

  • because you can`t get people out of the forest,

  • you can`t get animals out of these human dominated forests.

  • This is the corridor that we`ve created.

  • You took me to this little farm you purchased

  • between two tiger preserves

  • and it has turned into wildlife superhighway.

  • When I show pictures that this is from my kitchen,

  • I`ve shown that I have tigers walking here,

  • anyhow, it freaks them out.

  • You`re trying to convince your neighboring farmers

  • that maybe you should stop farming and let your land go wild.

  • If you stop farming and if you let free forests come back

  • and get some economic benefits from eco-tourism,

  • it would be a win-win situation.

  • As part of our presentation,

  • we now present three schools that are present on today`s Roll Call.

  • The Rams are here from San Antonio, Texas.

  • It`s the home of John Marshall High School.

  • The Wildcats are watching. LaGrange is in Ohio.

  • It`s where we found Keystone High School.

  • And it`s knight time.

  • Castle Heights Middle School is online

  • from South Carolina in the city of Rock Hill.

  • An international film festival kicked off last October.

  • It had some unique characteristics.

  • One, it was open only to students between

  • kindergarten and twelfth grade.

  • Two, its theme was the impact of giving back,

  • the focus on serving others.

  • Three, out of more than 1,500 submissions,

  • 15 of the short films were screened last Friday at the White House.

  • President Obama, Oscar winning actress Hillary Swank

  • and Oscar winning director Steve McQueen were there.

  • It was the second year for the event,

  • which was sponsored by the American Film Institute

  • and participant media.

  • Finalists were invited to attend the screening

  • and they got to go to workshops afterward focused on

  • sharpening their skills in filmmaking.

  • He`s an example of what one of the White House`s 15 selections looked like.

  • What will you give back?

  • People get stuck when asked.

  • I don`t know, their faces respond.

  • Oh, if they only saw what I saw.

  • We are capable of giving so much,

  • for we have been given all we need to give it all up.

  • We have a beating heart, air in our lungs.

  • Don`t you see what I see?

  • The teacher passionately giving away her education

  • for the sake of the student who is full of determination,

  • determination to rise, to dream, to fight, to create.

  • Giving their imagination for others to find inspiration.

  • Giving their stories in hopes for others to see what they see.

  • Giving their voice for others to find their own,

  • giving their words for others to know we are not alone.

  • The will to give has no age.

  • Here`s a wise coach --

  • giving away his child-like heart for boys who just want to have fun,

  • a humble custodian giving away her sore hands

  • for others to live in cleanliness.

  • The impact transcends time and space.

  • So here`s to giving it all away.

  • Before we go, a fish called Greedo.

  • "Star Wars" might get the name.

  • For the rest of us, it`s one crude catfish.

  • It was discovered in 1998 but it wasn`t until this year

  • that it was designated a new species.

  • Because of its large eyes and bristling bristles,

  • a researcher thought it looked like a short-lived "Star Wars" character.

  • If you were looking for the off screen version of Greedo,

  • you can find it in the waters of Northern Brazil.

  • It might lack the aura of an angelfish,

  • the colors of a clown fish or the regality of the regal tang,

  • but it`s not Greedo for attention.

  • There are many fish in the sea

  • and this cat is catching coverage swimmingly from fins around the galaxy.

  • This is CNN STUDENT NEWS and that`s our catch of the day.

Welcome back from the weekend.
